Lemon cordial

Lemon cordial



  • 10 lemons, large
  • 1.5kg sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 10g epsom salts
  • 10g citric acid
  • 10g tartaric acid


Squeeze and strain juice of lemons

Heat the sugar and water until sugar dissolves

Mix all ingredients together, strain

Pour into prepared sterilised bottles, this will keep well in fridge for up to 4 months.

You will need only 1/3 of the amount of shop bought cordial.

You can also use oranges/grapefruit instead or do 50/50 orange and lemon. I have also made lime cordial. When making lime, double the amount of fruit (20 limes).
